Tweet Picks:

@airinsight The @Qantas Project Sunrise version of the @Airbus  A350-1000 will seat 238 passengers in First, Business, Premium Economy, and Economy class compared to 372 in the standard 3-class version. Range is 16.800km, 700 km more than the standard -1000.

@AvWeekScho Big move for Australia’s Rex… signs interline partnership LOI with Delta. Gives Delta more Australian domestic feed after its partnership with Virgin Australia ended, and Rex can connect to Delta’s Sydney-LA route.

@AvWeekScho Here’s the planned cabin configuration for Qantas’ A350-1000s for Project Sunrise. Note the “well-being zone” for stretching, hydration etc. Qantas says it will have the lowest seat count of any A350-1000s in service.

@jonostrower Airbus says it is adding a new 20,000 liter (5,283 gal) center fuel tank to the newly-purchased Qantas A350-1000s to enable non-stop flying to Sydney to New York and London.

@jonostrower Interestingly, I had completely forgotten that Qantas wanted the 777-8 to be slightly longer than Boeing had originally envisioned for ULR ops. Boeing mothballed the -8 for passengers in 2019, but the new 777-8 freighter does add Qantas’ longer fuselage.
